Here is the species that macroscopically resembles Ps.Cyanescens - im pretty sure from its characteristics and the location where it was found that it is just a variant of Ps.Subaeruginosa - what do others think?
Hey bluemeanie I don't have a positive ID on those shrooms either but I can say that I find those EXACT little buggers here in New Zealand. It depends - do they have a 'sharp' little nipple right in the middle of the cap? Or smooth? If it is a sharp nipple then I think they are a variation of Ps. Subaeruginosa, if they are smooth on top I think it is a form of Ps. Cyanescens.
Well they have the same spores as these classic subaeruginosa below - and Ps.Subaeruginosa as found in Western Australia has a wavy cap that macroscopically resembles Ps.Cyanescens - but microscopically they are Subs. I used to think that these were Ps.Cyanescens, but i no longer believe that they are - i found the above wavy capps matres from where i found these below - they're just different variants:
